Economy Put In Perspective

This Financial Post article  brings an interesting perspective to the North American economy.  The economy of the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence region of North America, if it were a country, would rank as the third largest economy in the world.  It would rank in front of Japan and follow only the US and China.

The region accounts for 30% of the combined economies of both Canada and the US, and 31% of all employment, equivalent to 51 million jobs. All told, the economy in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence area was US $5.8 trillion in 2014. When ranked against Germany, France, Brazil and the United Kingdom, the region comes first in output.
